  1. Great podcast! It’s fabulous hearing from you again. You mentioned creating iPhone apps at work. You were looking for ideas. I’d love to see more knitting apps for the iPhone and iTouch. There could be a Ravelry app, a knitting podcast aggregator. How about a PDF reader that lets you take your favorite pattern(s) along with you? Maybe there could be an informational app on the types of wool/fiber (Shetland, Cormo, Bison, Yak, Tussah silk, corn). Fiberistas could read about the properties and best uses for each fiber then follow a link to a website where they could make a purchase.

    Everyone chime with your ideas as well. We’ll start some brainstorming.
